Like images of models it is sometimes easy to think the subjects are perfect and regular, and as you stitch along I am sure you are wondering if the standard of your needlework makes the grade. I was just looking through some very old archival snaps and I found this close-up of Mary Wigham which I thought you might like to see. Click on the image itself and you will get a larger image to inspect. (The photo was never properly colour-matched and I have also over-brightened it so you can better see, so please don't worry about the colours.) You can probably appreciate also how complex and time consuming it is to chart these samplers!
